The virtual restaurant was established after the founders enjoyed their first round of profits from the investment in DOGE.
A brand-new burger joint based on cryptocurrency has sprung up in Dubai and is known to accept orders in all the popular crypto tokens. The cryptocurrency-based restaurant, called the DOGE Burger rolls out food based on the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE).
While the restaurant is not completely “open” since it is essentially virtual, people can order food via delivery. According to Timeout Dubai, the virtual eating joint was designed and established by a chain of virtual restaurants, called the Rocket Kitchens. The menu for this restaurant was intricately deliberated upon by top chefs to sell typical American delicacies. Some of the main items on the menu include beef, chicken, mushroom Swiss burgers, etc.
The burger restaurant supposedly welcomes transactions in all popular crypto tokens like DOGE, BNB, CRO, XRP, USDT, and SHIB. The eating joint was designed and opened to initiate and influence a crypto culture in Dubai since the founders of the restaurants are one of the first people to have invested in the DOGE coin.
Moreover, it is claimed that the virtual restaurant was established after the founders enjoyed their first round of profits from the investment in DOGE. The cryptocurrency, which was initially brought into circulation ” as a joke” by developer Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer, is the first of its kind meme-inspired currency. Having said that, it is true that the Doge Burger is not the first restaurant in the United Arab Emirates to have started accepting payments in cryptocurrency. Many eating joints had begun carrying out payments in the Blockchain-based cryptocurrency networks since 2014.
Recently in January, Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk posted a tweet asking the popular eating joint McDonald’s to allow payments in DOGECOIN in exchange for him eating a Happy Meal on Television. The tweet was posted shortly after a cryptocurrency market sell-off witnessed a massive loss of nearly $600 billion in value, along with Dogecoin itself losing about 25%. In response to the massive breakdown of the market, McDonald’s made an irk on the crypto community which incited the billionaire to challenge the famous eatery. Elon Musk’s response was not only appreciated, but several celebrities also joined in to push for the acceptance of crypto payment methods at McDonald’s.
In an interesting reply to the online banter, McDonald’s humorously asked Tesla to accept “grimacecoin” first, which led to a significant increase in the price of the fake Grimacecoins.
While the instigation by Elon Musk did not turn out the way he had hoped, another competitor fast-food chain MrBeast Burger, which is an American delivery-only fast-food chain established by Jimmy Donaldson, gave a nod to Musk’s idea. The company also promised to contemplate the idea to accept the meme-inspired cryptocurrency if it got a retweet.
